And to add to my reply:  How to figure this out for yourself since
you already have a git tree...

For the first two, I did a 'git grep conmakehash', which told me it was
in a different Makefile.  'git blame drivers/tty/vt/Makefile | grep conmakehash'
popped out the commit for 'git show'...

The last one I had to resort to 'git log | grep -B30 sortextable | more'
